This is the story behind Anice:

“As I sit down to create, I close my eyes and remember…

It’s a Sunday afternoon and I am four years old. I jump out of the car and run towards the white gates of Grandma and Grandpa’s backyard. I leap into Grandpa’s arms and he squeezes me tight, while I squeeze back as hard as my little muscles can. Then I look to Grandma, smiling in her lounge chair. Her magnificent, glittery earrings, matching her outfit to perfection, capture me instantly. Once again I am enthralled by the splendor of her accessories. I make my way over to play with her many rings and admire the fascinating objects that decorate her ears.

“Grandma, one day can I wear pretty jewels like you?” "

Anice Kulak is Brittany Hopkins’s grandmother. She attributes her obsession and dedication to designing jewellery to her. Anice is the inspiration to her creations.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Picture Perfect Portraits with the Horizon Perfekt

    There is no question as to how the Horizon Perfekt can render a view of a mountain range or sea front breathtaking; that wide panorama and quality lens are proven capable of delivering spectacular scenery. Just put the Horizon Perfekt in front of you, choose the right settings and voila! You’ve got a surefire travelogue-worthy shot. But what about portraits or group photos? Shooting with a Horizon camera entails more creativity and requires more technique, but can be rewarding once you see the results.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
